The doctoral degree awarded by Hungarian University of Agriculture and Life Sciences (MATE) is an internationally recognized PhD degree. Our professional staff has a good reputation all over the world. The PhD students graduated from MATE find jobs in government offices, research institutions, business and education in Hungary and abroad alike.The PhD studies consist of tutorials, field and laboratory experimental work as well as preparation and defense of theses.

Our PhD programmes consist of 2+2 years. The first 2 years are completed by a complex exam at the end of the 4th semester. In the last 2 years, PhD students' effort will be focused only on research, publications and writing a dissertation. PhD programmes take place on four campuses in nine scientific areas.

Ratio of international students in PhD programmes amounts to 36% from more than 60 countries. Governmental scholarships are available for international students (Stipendium Hungaricum, Scholarship Programme for Christian Young People and Bilateral State Scholarships).
